    Unfortunately
    Far too much damage was done
    The attempts at repair
    Have been scanty at best
    And not accepted by the damaged
    Who are yet in a state of denial
    And all the while
    Suffering under the pain
    Of misused, distorted self
    And the lost sense of self

    The most thorough job
    Of terrorism and brainwashing
    Against a people
    Have them traumatized
    And completely mesmorized
    Wandering in a state of shock
    In a state of denial
    And all the while
    Hating self
    Destroying self

    It's as though they are hypnotized
    Living in body and yet crucified
    Hands and feet nailed
    Limited movement and work for self
    Thorn crown piercing head
    Thinking for self nearly dead
    Spear wound in side
    Yet all this is denied
    All allies have fled
    Double crossed, lifeless and dead
    Hanging there
    Blood everywhere
    Dazed and confused
    Tortured and abused
    Who will take them from the cross
    And pay for all their loss
    Nurse their wounds and sorrows
    Help them on to bright tomorrows
    Those robbed of knowledge of self
    Yet await vict'ry o'er death

    This is my 2004 Easter reflection.........​
